What peep sight do I want? Hunting, whitetail, shots to 100 yards. Been using the factory irons successfully, but want to go to a peep.

Give me some options to look in to. Pros vs cons etc

I only have only put on Lyman or Redfield steel Peep sights on my lever guns. I think I’ve bought some with cheaper peep sights though.

I've used the Williams FP quite a bit on my Guide gun, no problems with the sight. Sometimes I don't do so well...

The Williams is not as aesthetic as some others, but it works good.

I just put a skinners on a pair of rifles. Am very happy with both. Very rugged and not crap hanging off side of rifle to ruin the way they carry

Showed up at deer camp with a new to me 1969 Marlin 336 with factory iron sights and one of the senior members questioned me, because I always hunted with a scoped gun. Filled a doe tag with it and a couple days later the member pulled me aside and said he had a Williams FP that would improve the sight picture as your eyes get older. Twenty bucks and it was mine and he was right.

You might look at Williams WGRS-336 peep sight.

Willams works well I prefer XS ghost ring and front post. I’ve also looked at skinner folks seem to love them.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll take some time looking at each tomorrow.

Keep them coming!

I recently bought a win 94 made in the 40s. Someone had messed with the rear site. Since it was taped for a peep that is the direction I went.

I could not find anything but a williams that is what I used. It works very well. Ihave a 95 Win with a williams on it that I have been using for many years.

Try it you will like it.

Those sights work good and do have a much better appearance.

I do have Skinner posts on both of the rifles I have FPs on.

Skinner sight all the way, I saw a brand new one for a Marlin 336 in my desk awhile ago, still in plastic and cardboard wrap, had forgot i had the thing, and don't even have a rifle to mount it on. crazy

If you go with a tang mounted peep sight, like the Lyman #2, you could leave a Weaver base on the top of the receiver and if you use QR rings, like Durasight or Warne, you could carry a scope with rings in a scotch bottle tube in your daypack and install it for low light conditions where optics would be superior to either a peep or open sight.

Williams has a screw in brass aperture for the rear sight that helps in low light and they have fiber optic front beads too.

Beware on the front sight.. I leaned my 336A in the corner of my deer stand and the front sight got caught in the wood joint... broke the light tube.

I have XS sights on my 870 tacticool shot gun that I use for turkeys... they may be a bit large for fine sighting at longer distances.


Other than that, How was the show Mrs. Lincoln?

I have my favorites in this order. Lyman (steel), Redfield, Skinner and Williams. All are good. I use a Merit adjustable aperture on whichever rifle I'm using.

The Skinner's that mount on top of the receiver are looking nice.

Skinners are the cat's meow. Other sights have worked for me. But if I replace my XS on my 95 Marlin I will go Skinner. I hadn't been aware of them when I set up my 45-70. I want a sourdough front post. The brass always made the sight visible in shootable light. Don't know why they are hard to find today. Be Well, Rustyzipper.

I killed a bunch of whitetails with a Marlin 336 35 Remington and a Williams 5D peep.
